Review: Makeup Revolution 'The ONE' contour and highlight sticks

Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a great week?

 This week I thought I would review the Makeup revolution 'The ONE' highlight contour and sculpt contour sticks. Firstly, can I just say how much I love Makeup Revolution! I own a lot of their products as they are such good value for money. I could not live without their eyeshadow palettes! I have had these sticks for a while and have used them now and again. I bought them direct from the Makeup Revolution London website and at the time they were on offer so I got them both for £6! However they are back to full price now which is £5 each (still not bad).





Highlight and Sculpt
Starting with the Sculpt contour, I have to admit that I have only used it once. That's because I find the colour too orangey brown. I like to use more of a dirty brown when I contour, as it gives the effect of a natural shadow. However when orangey brown colours are used, the contour can look quite obvious, which is not a good look as far as I'm concerned. Aside from the colour, the pigment and consistency is quite nice. It is designed to use straight from stick to face however when contouring smaller areas, like the nose, you may need to use a brush, as the stick is quite wide.

Now for the highlight contour stick. I love to highlight as you can probably tell from my previous post, 'Contouring is out, strobing is in'. When the stick is applied directly from the stick straight to the skin, it gives off such a beautiful shimmer. It is very pigmented and gives a very sharp highlight. That's said, once you blend it or if you use a brush to apply it, it can look too glittery, which I personally do not like. That's why I stick to using it directly on the skin and I will definitely be using this more often, now I have rediscovered it.


In summary, I would definitely recommend the highlight stick but the sculpt is not for me. Have you tried any of these products? How did you find them? I would love to hear your comments!
